This is a 2-day face-to-face course

Course Content

This course is designed to impart understanding of both Engineer’s Representative and Contractor’s Representative roles, because an understanding of both is important for each side, and many participants may find themselves alternating between these two roles during their career.

Participants will gain a comprehensive understanding of the administration of NZS 3910 contracts, as well as potential errors and misunderstandings to avoid. Comprehensive notes are provided for future reference.

Content of this course was updated in 2018 and covers the 2013 revisions of NZS 3910 conditions of contract, and publication of the new NZS 3916 for design and construct contracts.

For organisations working on contracts let under NZS3910:2003, the workshop also covers how the old and new versions of the standard differ.

More than a lecture, at regular intervals this workshop involves working in groups on solutions to practical problems  in contract administration.

This is one of IPWEA NZ's most popular courses, having been well received by hundreds of participants from local authority, consultant, contractor and subcontracting organisations.

Who should attend

Those in the role of either Engineer's Representative or Contractor’s Representative under NZS3910 construction contracts, and those who aspire to these roles.
